How are Tallits used today?

The Tallit, or Prayer Shawl, is the most recognizable sign of Jewish worship. It is worn at prayer, or a by a groom at his wedding. The origin of the Tallit lies in Numbers 15 calling for the attachment of fringes to the four-cornered garments, worn during Biblical times, as a reminder of the 613 commandments of the Lord.

Today, a growing number of Believers consider the use of a Tallit as most important. Wrapping oneself with the prayer shawl is meant to assist in focusing on prayer. It is symbolic to wrapping oneself with G-d’s Love as one prays.

Tallits, or prayer shawls are used in Jewish and Christian all over the world.

Kippahs

 

KIPPAH/YARMULKE

When a person wears a kippah, he creates a certain responsibility to act as a God fearing person should act… the kippah helps hums to be reminded of this.

The skullcap worn traditionally by Jewish meant is known in Hebrew as a “kippah” (KEE-pah) or in Yiddish as “yarmulke” (YAHR-mul-kuh).

It has been proposed that the word yarmulke is derived from an Aramaic phrase, yarei malka, meaning “fear of the King [i.e. God],” or from the Hebrew phrase, ya’arei me’Elokai, “those who tremble before the Lord.” On the other hand the Hebrew-language equivalent, kippah, simply means “dome”.

Kippot come in a variety of sizes, colours and fabrics. There are no specific rules as to how your kippah should look. There is every style from the plain black velvet kipper to the leather kipper decorated with sports teams’ mascots.

There is no Biblical commandment to wear the kippah. However, the first mention of wearing head coverings as commanded by God is noted in Exodus. It was directed that Aaron’s sons be made to wear turbans of linen. The first century historian Josephus described the turbans as a strip of linen 16 cubits long, which was wound aroung the top of the head. After being wound, it was sewn and then covered with a piece of fine linen to hide the seams. The end result was a conical shaped hat which could very well have been the predecessor of how the kippah looks today.

The kippah is traditionally worn by young boys and men as an outward sign of the belief in the God above us and identification with the Jewish people. While some wear the kippah all the time, others choose wear kippot only while praying, eating, resting a blessing, or studying Jewish religious texts. Kippot are also expected to be worn in the synagogue, at weddings, funerals and other life cycle events. Today, even some women choose to wear a kippah.

The kippah tells the world that the wearer is bound by God’s commandments and lives his life accordingly. There is no reason a non-Jewish man cannot wear a kippah to display faithfulness to God and all He commands.
